As Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz -- who has endorsed Marco Rubio for President -- appeared as a guest on Monday's The Situation Room on CNN, host Wolf Blitzer repeatedly questioned Rubio's fitness for office, with seven out of his first nine questions and setup statements challenging the Florida Senator on issues ranging from his repetition of lines during Saturday's debate, to his level of experience and number of missed votes in the Senate. Blitzer suggested that the Florida Republican's debate performance "could be a Rick Perry 'oops' moment."

After tying a large noose while calling Senator Ted Cruz a “fish-faced, horses*** salesman,” new TBS host Samantha Bee proclaimed fellow GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio’s pro-life stance in Saturday’s debate was “literally the stupidest thing I've ever heard” and backed by a “cabal of fetus fanatics.” Bee also urged Rubio to continue telling supporters that Hillary Clinton believes in late-term abortions so women can “deliver our babies directly” into a glorified blender “so that Planned Parenthood can sell it to Whole Foods.”

MSNBC's Chris Matthews is enjoying beating the dead horse that is Marco Rubio's repetitive answers on Saturday night's debate. But in doing so, Matthews himself is continually trotting out the same talking points about "short-term memory loss" and sounding like a character from the 1982 movie Blade Runner.

Chris Matthews and Brit Hume are, it's safe to say, probably rarely in agreement on much. Tonight, however, both compared Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio's handling of Chris Christie in tonight's New Hampshire primary debate to Dan Quayle poor debate performance in 1988 against Sen. Lloyd Bentsen (D-Texas).

Appearing as a guest on Saturday's CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow, CNN political commentator Carl Bernstein declared that, after spending time talking to the White House about Hillary Clinton's paid speeches to Goldman-Sachs, that they are "horrified" that Clinton is "blowing up her own campaign," and invoked President Richard Nixon's tapes as possibly comparable to the transcripts of her speeches.

As he described apparent panic at the White House, Bernstein used words and phrases like "terrified," "dumbfounded," "tied up in knots," and "beside themselves" to describe reaction to Clinton's "unfathomable" behavior that "has endangered President Obama's legacy."

Catching up with Donald Trump in the "spin room" after Saturday's GOP debate, NBC's Hallie Jackson attempted to get Donald Trump to say who he thought "lost" the GOP debate, hoping, perhaps, to get the New Hampshire frontrunner to attack Sen. Marco Rubio. For his part, Trump refused to take the bait.

NPR's Mara Liasson went after ABC News on Fox News Channel's Special Report on Friday over their decision to not invite Carly Fiorina to their upcoming Republican presidential debate: "It's inexplicable. I don't know how they can stand up and explain why the only woman in the race — who placed above some of the people who are on the stage and has a delegate — is not there. I can't even imagine...what the explanation would be."

All three network morning shows on Friday celebrated Hillary Clinton’s Thursday night debate performance as if she was a champion prize fighter. On NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie proclaimed: “Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders faced off in their most contentious debate yet. Clinton accusing Sanders of running a, quote, ‘artful smear,’ against her.”

In the middle of gathering Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s reaction to Thursday’s MSNBC Presidential Candidates Debate, Hardball host Chris Matthews inquired which political party has “better people” and specifically if Democrats are “better human beings than Republicans.” Matthews’s bizarre foray into judging whether half the American people are “better” than the other comes, of course, as his wife Kathleen is running as a Democrat for Congress in Maryland’s Eighth Congressional District.

As they’ve done after a number of the debates thus far, Hardball host Chris Matthews hosted MSNBC’s post-Democratic debate analysis on Thursday night and, with the help of NBC News Clinton correspondent Andrea Mitchell, uttered a litany of noteworthy points ranging from Hillary Clinton being “sterling” on “an extraordinary night in American politics” to dubbing the debate “one of the best I've ever seen.”

"You guys get to vote in five days. We can't wait to see how it turns out. Don't screw it up!" – MSNBC debate co-host Rachel Maddow at the conclusion of the February 4, 2016 Democratic primary debate in New Hampshire. This was the first and only one-on-one debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders before the Granite State primary on February 9.

Just as he did on January 24's Meet the Press, MSNBC Presidential Candidates Debate co-moderator Chuck Todd chose to ask Hillary Clinton about her e-mail scandal not in terms of substance or reporting concerning new details about this but instead through a lazy, political lense as if he’s speaking on behalf of Democratic voters. In the first question, Todd provided anecdotal evidence that “many Democratic voters that our reporters have been running into in Iowa and New Hampshire” have been “worried about the e-mail issue.”
